Why Row the English Channel?

I had the idea for this attempt three years ago because in August 2008, my brother Ollie was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. During his five-and-a-half months in hospital, the Make-A-Wish Foundation offered him a wish which really helped keep him going whilst fighting the disease.

Thankfully, he is cured but I know personally two other people who have received a Wish. One who had cancer and is sadly no longer with us and one who is permanently seriously disabled.

I am training hard and really looking forward to the challenge. I would appreciate it hugely if you read my blogs, show your support on Facebook and Twitter, and donate what you can at www.justgiving.com/harryuglowrowing
